Everything about this hostel was fantastic. We booked 2 nights at this hostel and 3 nights at a hostel by Kensington but after the first night at the other hostel we switched back because we just loved this one so much. It's above an adorable London-ey pub yet it's still very quiet. Close to the London eye, bridge, trains, everything. We even walked to Westminster from here because the river isn't far and it's a beautiful walk. Love love love the hostel. Couldn't say enough awesome things.

My stay in this hostel was very comfortable! The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The room was better than I expected -- very clean and nicely equipped. It's quiet at night, as the pub downstairs closed at 11pm that Thursday. The location was perfect, walking distance to many attractions. I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here for 2 weeks when I first got to London. Staff were awesome, especially Josh, Flavia and Valeska. They made me and everyone at the hostel feel so welcome and were so helpful with me being new to London. I spent a few nights at the bar, the crowd and staff all get along, I had an awesome time, it's a very friendly and welcoming environment. Perfect location being at London bridge. I definitely recommend this hostel to anyone!

Tiny bathrooms...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we are sorry to hear you hated your stay with us, our bathrooms while smaller than other hostels are not tiny, they are more than big enough to shower and change in, had you looked at the photo's on the website you would have seen the size of the bathrooms, thank you for your comments.

Great hostel. Rooms were a bit tight on space, but good value for money.

I've been in the hostel for seven days and i can tell that is a great hostel, very nice atmosphere at the bar, the people working there is very kind, everything is clean and the bed is VERY good specially after a long day walking. The breakfast is very good too. The hostel is close to Borough underground station so you can move from there to everywhere in london. Thanks to all the guys and girls that work in the hostel!

Awesome staff but the no kitchen or common room is where it lost out. The included breakfast was really good and the TV and fridge in room was nice. We definitely would have been happier if there was a microwave available for at least some meals there. Super safe feel but the pictures are a bit misleading especially the patio area. Honestly location isn't as important in London as long as you stay close to a tube station you can get anywhere quick. Price felt a bit steep.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we do not advertise we have a common room/kitchen, had you read the hostel description, we actually say not to book our hostel if your looking for these facilities, I am not sure what you mean about our photo's, all our photo's are real and not misleading as you described, we have exactly what you see in our photo's, we don't put microwaves in the rooms because of safety and rodent reasons, thank you for your comments.

Would be better if locking luggage case under bed had more room to fit a full suitcase.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, our lockers while not big enough for a full size suitcase can take a smaller suitcase or backpack and should you need to we can store your large suitcase in our secure luggage room, thank you for your comments.

I was there for one night only. The hostel is in a good location, only 2 minutes on foot from a important metro station. The reception is a pub, it's very welcoming. the hostel is clean in general but it wasnt worth the amount we pay. Not my favorite hostel but it's ok for one night or two.

One of the best hostels I´ve stayed in my month travelling around Europe. The staff was always helpful and nice. The location is unbeatable, really close to many of the touristic points and to the subway. The only thing that I think that rests points is that they don´t have a kitchen where you can cook your own meals, but they do offer a fridge and free water, tea and coffee in your room. I definitely recommended it, I would stay here on my next time in London.

We had a great time at The Rose & Crown. Our room was quite nice, the staff was very kind and the beer tasty. The hostel is perfect to reach any part of London by tube, train or even by feet. The most we enjoyed were our little talks to Charles. I had a wonderful birthday in London. We will definitely come back. Thanks for everything!!!

It was a little hard to find the hostel, and kind of embarrassing to check in at night because the hostel operates as a bar. Otherwise, very kind staff, beautiful breakfast! I'd want to visit here again for sure :)
